|F.S.B. - We spy on you [top23] - top-40.org|
This is a radical experiment with silence, paranoid micronoises, inspired by the art of espionage. By chance we were able to capture this secret transmission to reveal the truth – someone's always secretly watching you. The musical idea of this work is concentrated in the absolutely imperceptible nuances: sounds brought to you by your imagination are even more important, that the ones actually recorded...

|Les - Encens Japonais [top40] - top-40.org|
It's the music of silence. With this radical experiment in the field of inaudible music, you can explore the very subtle and almost immaterial transient between the sound and the silence, the music and the background noise of your room.Once I wake up in the middle of the night and notice some very quiet, but distinct low humming noise. I explored the room and realized it were loudspeakers. Oh, - I thought...

|George Crumb - A Little Suite For Christmas (performed by Pavel Dombrovsky) [top17] - top-40.org|
George Crumb, a renowned modern American composer, started to write music after Second World War, and he is still working nowadays. He wrote A Little Suite for Christmas for piano in 1980. The main idea of this composition is a dialogue between sound and silence, which is the fully legitimate "member" of Crumb's music. The long pauses between intensive blasts of sound prepare the listener very well to conceive even the subtlest musical passages, and the whole impression is really stunning...

|Sascha Müller - System 100 [top13] - top-40.org|
Sascha Müller from Germany is working as a DJ and a producer since 1990, and he is mostly known for his dance-oriented music: house and techno. Though, being extremely productive, he is one of those guys who never limits himself to a one particular genre - so, he tried almost everything in a wide range from oldschool acid to lo-fi Commodore 64 and Gameboy music, including even releases on floppy 3.5" discs! System 100 is a first attempt for Sascha to explore musical areas of silence...

|Steve Reich - Piano Phase (performed by Peter Aidu) [top09] - top-40.org|
In 1967, Steve Reich composed Piano Phase - a piece of music for two pianos. It was his first attempt at applying the phasing technique to live performance. Two pianists are playing a rapid twelve-note melodic figure over and over again in unison. As one player precisely keeps the tempo, the other speeds up very slightly until the two parts line up again, but one sixteenth note apart. The second player then resumes the previous tempo...
